Geum triflorum Pursh
Old man’s whiskers/ Prairie Smoke
3″ x 6″h (seed head) versatile plant for the rock garden. It has 3 season interest and you might be lucky to see a bumble-bee! I have not seen one in more than two years in my garden.
Made for well drained, hot / dry sites, but also found in sub-alpine and montane meadows. The leaves are like those of curled parsley, but more upright in
I plan to line the path with these and smelly geraniums.
Purchased 3 from Prarie Nursery. Delivered on 6/4/2019. These will go into larger pots for planting later in the year.
